Dixie - Ashley Monroe

If I ever get out of Dixie
Gonna buy me some brand new shoes
Gonna have somebody shine 'em up soon as I pay my dues
If I ever get out of Tennessee
Out from 'neath this dust and dirt
Gonna live just like a high and mighty
Gonna get what I deserve

When I cross that line, man I'll sing a brand new song
Instead of sitting here by the railroad tracks whistlin' Dixie all day long
I'm so tired of paying, praying for my sins
Lord get me outta Dixie Land in Jesus' name, amen

It was the mines that killed my daddy
It was the law that killed my man
It was the Bible belt that whipped me
When I broke the Fifth Command
I don't hate the weather
I don't hate the land
But if I had my way I'd never see this place again

When I cross that line, man I'll sing a brand new song
Instead of sitting here by the railroad tracks whistlin' Dixie all day long
I'm so tired of paying, praying for my sins
Lord get me outta Dixie Land in Jesus' name, amen
When I cross that line, man I'll sing a brand new song
Instead of sitting here by the railroad tracks whistlin' Dixie all day long
I'm so tired of paying, praying for my sins
Lord get me outta Dixie Land in Jesus' name, amen

When I tread out of these parts
Look me up on the other side
Cause I'll be damned if I go down in Dixie when I die
Yeah, I'll be damned if I go down in Dixie when I die
